    Hey guys,
    I'm a bit new here but I thought I'd throw out some specs and see if anyone knew a fair price to ask.. I'm going fully mobile with a TiBook, but I gotta sell my old cube first... (or trade if anyone is a cube enthusiast) It is:

    g4 450
    1gig ram (2x256 & 1x512)
    Seagate Barracuda 7200 80gig
    DVD
    video and the rest is stock.

    I also have a digital 15" studio display.
    I've check ebay but you don't see that much ram and storage on ebay. I suppose $400 for the display, maybe $350 would be fair.
    What about the cube itself though?

    Software includes 9 & X.3
    photoshop 6 & dreamweaver 4 (not much, but something)

    I have an interested buyer, who will prolly pay what I ask if it's fair, so high-balling is acceptable. What is the most I could fairly ask?
    One final thing, if I sink into a Sonnet Duet card, and upgrade it to a dual 500 before I sell it on ebay, you think I'll get the price of the card plus some change back?
    Thanks for any help..

    I wouldnt bother upgrading... ask for 1100 and im sure you will sell it.

    1300 max.

    Good Times.

    VERY unlikely. Save the money and just sell it.

    I'd say no more then $1400 with the monitor, keyboard, mouse and everything. Is there any warranty (Applecare) left on the computer?? If not, then I'd say $1300 is fair. IF it has Applecare, with a decent amount of time left, then another $100 is all that should be added.

    im looking for a cube but i am super broke. i have a 400 mhz g4 tower(AGP) dvd video and zip 100 with 768 megs of ram and a 21 inch crt. It is equipped with scsi and i will also include a scsi cd burner. I will also include a 8500 with 350 g3 upgrade, 10,000 rpm 19 gig hd 17 inch rotating monitor (super rare).
    I will pay difference if any.
